Removal of support for Windows Vista, Windows 8 and early versions of Windows 10

Future versions of Cyotek products will retarget to use .NET Framework 4.8, from the current of 4.6.

This change will mean that newer versions of our products will no longer be able to be used on Windows Vista, Windows 8, Windows 10 (version 1507) or Windows 10 November Update (version 1511).

Supported versions are Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) or higher. For more information on .NET Framework operating system support, please consult the Microsoft System Requirements documentation.

.NET 4.8 is built into Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903) or above, or you can download it directly from Microsoft for earlier versions. Note that the appropriate Cyotek product setup will automatically download and install .NET 4.8 if it isn't detected.
